Before you leave

Start and run time

  • Printing tickets is not necessary, but make sure you have them on your phone and can display them clearly.
  • The performance will start punctually. We are unfortunately unable to admit latecomers and tickets will not be refunded if you arrive late, so please arrive well on time.
  • Estimated running time - part one: two hours; interval: 40 minutes; part two: one hour and 10 minutes. Around four hours in total.


Car access, location and parking

  • The exact location address is: Miramarlaan, 1020 Brussels.
  • There is parking at the Heysel, but the price of the parking is not included in the ticket price.
  • The Brussels Capital Region has been a low-emission zone (LEZ) since 2018. Please check in advance whether you are allowed to enter the LEZ with your vehicle. If your vehicle does not meet the emission requirements, you can use transit parking and car alternatives when you enter Brussels.
  • You can park in the parking lot in front of Palace 12 for 10 €. Are you coming on Sunday 22 March? Be sure to leave on time or come by public transport, because the cup final of Belgian football will also take place on the Heyzel at the same time as the performance.


Public transport

  • If you come by subway, take any line towards Koning Boudewijn and alight at ‘Heizel’.
  • Tram line 7 of the MIVB also stops at Brussels Expo. Take the tram towards Heizel and alight at the last stop. Trams 51 and 93 stop at the Koning Boudewijn stadium. Tram 3 (Esplanade) stops at Meysselaan.
  • Bus routes 14, 83 and 88 towards Heizel stop at Brussels Expo, alight at ‘Heizel’, where the bus terminates.
  • All prices include an STIB/MIVB Event Pass. With every KVS ticket you receive an Event Pass that entitles you to a return trip on STIB/MIVB trams, buses and metro on the day of the performance. 


At the venue

Seating and tickets

  • This performance uses free seating and there are no seat numbers, regardless of what is indicated on your ticket.
  • The audience will be divided over four galleries erected around the set. The view is equally good from every gallery, but each allows you to see the performance slightly differently. We recommend returning to the same gallery after the interval, as the performance is meant to be viewed from one location.
  • Taking pictures during the performance is not allowed.
  • There is no cloakroom, but you can store your jacket and bag in lockers. So definitely bring a coin of € 1 with you, you will get this back afterwards.


Food and drink

  • The venue is accessible from 6pm, when you can grab a bite of street food and a drink.



  • The performance is in Dutch and will be surtitled in French and English.
